Video: 'Van Life' Episode Tours 'Ultimate Climbing-Bum Vehicle'

Pro climbers Jonathan Thesanga and Brittany Griffith live and roam in a tricked-out Sprinter van. It’s a lust-worthy vagabond home with massive space inside, reclaimed materials, solar panels and a power store from Goal Zero, and many of the comforts of home.

Watch the whole episode to see how the couple lives and travels in the vehicle year-round on a quest for adventure and steep stone. And don’t miss the hilarious pot-shot Thesanga takes at fellow pro climber Alex Honnold near the end in reference to the “white, window-less” van that Honnold calls home.
